On Lytro Illum in the hands of five leading photographers article (166 comments in total)

I think I finally get this!

It's an interactive photograph with more than one subject possible.

I looked at the gallery and the way to view the images just feels funny so far. If only the photographer could create two (or more) focus points that were automatically moved to and from, that would be a nicer user experience and would better fulfill the photographer's vision. The size of the sensor seems too small to properly appreciate the focus interaction as well.

Wow, fantastic work!

That's a pretty innovative use of time lapse. I like!

I've been waiting for that underwater flash for my AW1. Just in time for vacation!

I just got the old TC-14E II. I wonder if its worth upgrading.

Just a side note, the new price on the 400/2.8 is $3k more than before.

Ew, no. I hate the red, kind of like the white.

On Nikon D4s First Impressions Review preview (1052 comments in total)
In reply to:

57even: Dear DPR - JPEG "dynamic range" is not dynamic range. It's a post RAW applied tone curve. It is actually quite irrelevant.

Please, don't keep calling it "dynamic range" because it isn't unless it's shot in RAW and opened in a non-profiled RAW converter.

I don't understand this either. How can you compare? There are a ton of things you can (or the manufacturer) do in-camera, lower the contrast, use the Active D-Lighting, etc.

It seems like you're comparing the two camera design teams' taste.

Cool bio. It lead me to searching his jawline and "squinch" videos. Awesome.

Pat Cullinan Jr: Anyone know what "drehkopf" means?

Swivel. Literally "rotating head", so it's used in other contexts as well.

On Hands on with the Pentax 645Z article (654 comments in total)
In reply to:

plevyadophy: Have all the Pentax fans actually considered the fact that this thing is NOT really medium format; it's not true medium format in sensor size nor is it digital medium format.

It's more like the medium format equivalent of a Leica M8 or Canon 1D with their APS-H sized sensors, and some have even gone as far as referring to this new Pentax's sensor size as Medium Format DX.

Really, in my view, things only matter when the diagonal of the sensor/film roughlydoubles/halves. So going from micro Four Thirds to 35mm,and then from 35mm to 645 or 6 x 6, and then up to 10 x 8 all make a significant difference. For those going from Pentax APS-C sensor cams to this Pentax 645Z there's gonna be a MASSIVE difference but I don't think it's worth bothering with if you already own say a Nikon D800e.

The camera body is superb though, the best on the market in my view. It's just a pity that they didn't provide a fully articulating rear LCD instead of the mere flip up and flip down variety.

None of that changes the fact that all three MF manufacturers offer sensors in this size.

The economy must be doing better than we thought.

On Sigma 50mm F1.4 DG HSM | Art Lab Test Review preview (555 comments in total)
In reply to:

Mais78: The new Sigma lenses are very good optically and shine in lab tests. But as a owner of a Sigma 35mm f1.4 who went through 3 copies I can tell you that in real life the AF is hit and miss and certainly you cannot trust any focus point that is not the central one.

And my experience was entirely different. It's the best lens I own.
